Six years ago


Six years ago today I began a journey at 1:15p.m.

I had no idea where I was going. No clue regarding the difficulty of the tasks ahead.

I could say it was the beginning of the fall. But I won’t. I don’t see it that way.

Six years ago, not only did I give birth to my first child, I unknowingly gave birth to a new me. I gave birth to a strong new woman who was about to be tested in ways she never thought possible. Ways that allowed me to grow in directions I never thought possible.

I am constantly amazed at my daughter’s intelligence, her impeccable sense of humor, and her compassion toward everyone around her. The girl would give you the shirt off her back if she thought it would help you. (I have NO idea where she gets all this compassion from. None! *wink*)

I’m thrilled to celebrate her birthday today. And truly the ultimate Survivor Mama Day for me. Because six years ago today is when the me today was born. And I am madly in love with both of us!

    • Grown is definitely the word! Chris and I keep telling her she’s got to stop growing up. We’re hitting the nostalgic point with her – at 6. We’re gonna be a wreck by the time she graduates HS!
